Online Event
By Brittany Oliver in partnership with the Enoch Pratt Free Library
The fabric of racism is inextricably woven and constructed into the founding principles of the United States. However, racism was done and can be undone through effective anti-racist education with, and in accountability to the communities most impacted by racism.
Brittany Oliver will facilitate a workshop on how to divest from racism and prejudice at all levels and explain why it is important to show solidarity.
Participants will:
• Build a clear understanding of key concepts such as racial equity and structural racism
• Learn to talk about race constructively within their organizations and with their constituents
• Gain tools and practices for counteracting racial bias in their work and practices
• Identify opportunities and next steps for applying concepts and strategies to advance racial equity
• Develop and commit a call to action: what are you already doing, and what more can you do
Note: Please sign up via Eventbrite. Facebook is not an official RSVP. The Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants an hour before the workshop.
